Specifications, Availability and Pricing
The design of the Naos 8200 has a lot going for it. While it is only for the right-handers out there, it is very ergonomic in form. The entire mouse is covered with four layers of a rubber coating to optimize the grip of the Naos. This also gives all the edges, curves, and buttons a flat and smooth appearance. Part of the design that makes the Naos 8200 a perfect fit in the hand is that not only are there curves to center your fingers on to, but both the left for your thumb, and the right for your ring and pinky finger are designed to fully support them. This makes it so that there is no extra drag from your hand either to allow for better tracking across the surface you choose to mouse over. One last thing that makes the Naos 8200 so pleasing to look at is that once powered, there is the default green set to all of the LED lighting found around the mouse. It's not that LED lighting hasn't been done before, but green LED products are sort of rare.
Internally Mionix does step up the game with this mouse. To control everything about the way the Naos works and how it talks to the PC, they have chosen to use a 32-bit ARM processor that is clocked to 72MHz. Tracking your movement, the Naos 8200 comes equipped with the Avago ADNS A9800 laser sensor that offers up to 8200 DPI, and is currently the highest sensor on the market. To allow you to be able to set Macros and profiles, and take them on the mouse with you if you have to travel, there is also 128kb of memory stored in the mouse to allow just that. Now along with all of these goodies packed inside, Mionix did make the mouse plug-and-play, but to be able to gain access to the controls, you do need to download the software. In there you have total control of things like DPI settings, polling rates, LED colors, and even the S.Q.A.T. tool for analyzing the gaming surface. Let's be honest though, with a mouse boasting all of these features, why would you not want the software to fully unlock the Naos 8200's potential?
If you want top of the line in mouse offerings, it is going to come at a price, we have seen this from all manufacturers. As I looked on the Mionix site, they have the MSRP set at $89.99 for the Naos 8200, and from the two listings I found for this mouse for sale, they both are sticking to that pricing as well. J&R.com is actually showing stock, while the listing at Newegg is awaiting stock. This isn't surprising at all since the Naos 8200 has just hit the market. Also since we will be taking a quick look at the Ensis 320 aluminum mouse pad, its MSRP is currently set to $39.99. The Ensis does come in two flavors, ours being the black and not natural aluminum, but where I can locate stock, most e-tailers are beating the MSRP.
The pricing isn't out of reality in my opinion on either product, but let's get a look at them and since I already spent some time with it, we can cover just how nice of a mouse the Mionix 8200 is and why at the end.
